TheaterScene.Net Review

“Aaron Lloyd and G. Anthony Williams excel at playing two comical teenagers.”

“An eerie device of the playwrights is having the marauding National Guardsmen played by African-American actors in white face. Horace Glasper, G. Anthony Williams, Chaz Ruben and Chauncey DeLeon Gilbert all vividly perform these roles with suitable menace.”

TheEasy.com Review

“The scene shifts, becoming increasingly eerie. Footsteps echo through the theater until four soldiers in whiteface (Chauncey DeLeon Gilbert, Horace Glasper, G. Anthony Williams, and Chaz Reuben) appear, each with unique and dynamic character traits. The pattern repeats itself—the men’s chemistry and banter is on par with the women, and their talk quickly shifts from jokes about women to racial slurs and vulgar, sexual language.”

“… along with two teens (Williams and Aaron Lloyd) who will stop at nothing to sneak a drink.”

“Rosalee Pritchett and The Perry’s Mission are especially fascinating to watch back to back—each plays with and ultimately warps African American stereotypes. These beautifully crafted plays, about the ways people in our country view race, women, and African American culture as a whole, have messages that stick long after the curtain falls.”

Panel Moderator

Panel discussions, what makes them engaging, and what dooms them to dullness? That’s the question that rattles around my brain as I work on media events in various capacities: (host, moderator, panelist) here’s a compilation of tips for moderators and event organizers about planning a great panel discussion.

One of the things I enjoy is moderating lively, insightful panel discussions. I believe my role as Panel Moderator is to make the speakers look good and make sure that they connect with the audience. I do that by establishing the tone of the discussion, and inviting the audience into a respectful open dialogue that encourages a balanced view of the issues.

I set the tone by understanding the goals of the forum, knowing the issues in sufficient depth, and coordinating the involvement of the expert panelists to keep a response or a discussion on target.

I am a smart listener capable of encouraging others to speak. I have a working knowledge of the arts and popular culture. I have proven research skills and the ability to write sharp questions and effective scripts to get the best out of an individual or group discussion.
